I made this post strictly to say to fellow bloggers/vloggers/gamers: your voices matter, especially when it comes to the social issues that affect gaming.
I especially want to direct that statement at men in the community who brave the topic of sexism and sexualization in games, or who are interested but are hesitant […]
The Sarkeesian Question, as I’m calling it, is what many gamers and anti-feminists are asking everyone around them. It’s something we all ought to approach with care because everyone on all sides is very concerned with the implications of Anita Sarkeesian’s Tropes Vs. Women video series. The message itself? That sexism pervades our media. […]
Heart of the Swarm, the latest installment in the Starcraft 2 story, has been both mildly entertaining and mildly disappointing. I enjoyed the campaign, but I was left bored with the artists’ efforts to make Kerrigan sexy for the traditional male audience.
Sarah Kerrigan, the main character in this chapter, was once a babe and […]
Ah it’s been a lovely week or so around the sphere reading all the various responses to Anita Sarkeesian’s video series while also keeping up with the various “events” in gaming. I don’t know why, but it seems that so far in 2013 gamers are getting serious even more than before about games, […]
Don’t let the title fool you: this is not intended strictly for men. It is, however, a question or two guys ask on the subject of sexism in gaming. Maybe I can make a trend of this by periodically publishing those questions and getting readers and bloggers to help answer them.
Today, here’s my inspirational […]
I always knew I’d be inspired to respond to Anita Sarkeesian’s new video series exploring tropes versus women in video games and so the latest video has prompted me into action. Honestly, I expect that many bloggers will write about it as each new episode is published and I think it’s […]
No, I haven’t turned my blog into strict social commentary. It’s just that, as they say, I “can’t unsee”. Once you become aware of something you start to recognize how much of it is around you. In my case, blogging about it is simply a recent thing; for years I’ve kept out of these discussions, […]
While guy characters tend to have an abundance of variety compared to women, they also, ironically, probably have very little when you consider it’s just straight, white males most of the time. And they’re all great guys according to most narratives. But if we go by what we actually see around […]
The latest debacle is Tentacle Bento. Several other wonderful blogs have already taken up a sound critique of it and I agree their assessments. They each offer critical views and pose questions we ought to take into a gamer community discussion:
Think Progress: A Tentacle Rape Game – Why are People Supporting this? […]
This is in response to Tobold’s article.
In my efforts to limit the title of this article, I short-handed it. It’s meaning is to include all those who agree with Tobold’s stance. It is *not* my intention to lump all into one group, but merely to respond to a collective idea about sexism, […]
